Drumstick paratha

Drumstick (sargva) paratha is flavorful and nutritious paratha recipe made with drumstick pulp and regular spices. I also share Gujarati style marcha no sambharo which tastes great with paratha. It is usually made for breakfast and sometimes lunch and dinner also. This recipe is quick and easy to make and with all the basic ingredients from your kitchen. Do try this!

The key to making tasty drumstick paratha at home are

  • Firstly, in this recipe, I have added wheat dough into drumstick pulp, but it can also be made with other flours too. You can add besan flour or plain flour with wheat flour but it is tasty and healthier with just wheat flour.
  • You can also add different vegetables of your choice to make paratha more nutritious.
  • Also, paratha dough should be soft and smooth, do not knead tight dough because it is not easily stretched while rolling paratha.
  • Lastly, you can apply either ghee or oil while roasting. Also roast paratha on a medium flame for the crispy outer layer.
